Tee off for charity

Mission’s Lanka Jewels is inviting the public to its third annual charity golf tournament taking place at the Sandpiper Golf Course.

Golfers can enjoy a day on a great 18-hole course and help support a good cause – all at the same time.

Mission’s Lanka Jewels is inviting the public to join in the fun at its third annual charity golf tournament taking place at the Sandpiper Golf Course in Harrison Mills.

The tournament is set for June 19 and 100 per cent of the proceeds being donated to Canuck Place Children’s Hospice.

“This is a great community that can support many causes,” said Ken Selvaraja, owner of Lanka Jewels.

He said the tournament is “our way, my staff, to help the community, as a team.”

It allows them to give back to the community and gives the community a chance to support a great charitable organization.

It is also a way to promote Mission itself and people can come and see what the community has to offer, said Selvaraja.

“This community doesn’t sit back and wait for things to happen, we jump in to help,” he added.

If you don’t enjoy golfing, there are other ways to support the event. Selvaraja said products and services are still needed for the silent auction and those who donate can receive tax receipts from Canuck Place.

The event takes place June 19 with registration at noon and a shotgun start at 1 p.m.

The entry cost is $165 for the green fee with shared cart, on-course hot dog and drink followed by a meet and greet at 6 p.m., buffet dinner at 6:30 p.m. plus a silent auction and much more.

To register visit Lanka Jewels at #326 – 32555 London Avenue, Mission (The Junction) or contact Naomi at 604-826-5766, or go online at lankajewels.ca.
